Friday Foxer #91

Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.

Rithmetic foxers are equations disguised as picture sequences. Each pic in the three specimens below represents a number (For example a photo of The Flying Scotsman might signify 4472, 462, or 3). It’s your job to identify the mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication or division) indicated by the lettered squares. The BIDMAS rule applies. If a solution involves brackets or indices, Roman will mention it.

  1. GREEN (Between F & G) I reckon is a hand grenade, and probably Japanese… So maybe a Type 10 , 91, 97, 98 or 99 :p… But can’t find any cross sections of them.

    Ah ha, it’s a German DM 51!

  2. This is what we have for green, by the way:

    12 ? 51 ? 7 ? 10 ? 155 ? 800 = 1160

    Not that I can seem to do anything with it. Finer minds, have at it!
